Weekly Wellbeing 

All the Joy of the Season

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the CHPS Wellbeing Team.  We all made it! 


A CHPS family recently acquired a puppy, check it out below.  Maybe over the holidays try to mimic ‘puppy life’:  sleep when you want to, have heaps of fun, cuddle the ones you love and greet everyone you meet with a smile.
